Yes it can. But that is why we have communities like this one and others so our movement can grow and we can have support.
I feel you, I live in the bible belt and do not know any atheist other than my wife.
I hope that one day America and ofcourse the rest of the world will be as secularized and acceptive as Scandinavia.
I'm from Sweden so I have been spared the "atheist-mistrust" that exist in the more religious nations. Here parents start to worry when kids come home wearing a cross or starts dating that wellcombed freaky christian guy.
So I will not say that I know how life is for atheists in America. But the things I hear makes me sad. Stay strong so that more Atheists dare to emerge :)
